Atlanta Braves P Freddy Garcia made his first appearance Sunday, Sept. 1, after being acquired from the Baltimore Orioles Aug. 23, for cash. He worked 4 2/3 scoreless innings of relief, allowing three hits and a walk. "Freddy did a good job saving our bullpen," manager Fredi Gonzalez said.
Fantasy Tip: Garcia is expected to be sided as a long reliever, but the skipper also indicated Garcia could see a spot start at times in the final month of the regular season. Either way, he is only worth a look in deepest of NL-only fantasy leagues.

The Baltimore Orioles are working on an attempt to re-sign SP Freddy Garcia.
Fantasy Tip: Garcia didn't carry fantasy value before the O's designated him for assignment, so fantasy owners can guess his value if they're successful in this venture.

The Baltimore Orioles designated SP Freddy Garcia for assignment Monday, June 24, and recalled SP Kevin Gausman from the minors in a corresponding move. Garcia said he won't retire, and he didn't rule out accepting a minor league assignment.
Fantasy Tip: Gausman struggled in his first taste of the majors earlier this month. You can likely hold off on adding him in deep mixed leagues until we see better results.
